Prepping lifts on a stormy day

Categories: Guest Connection Inside Meadows Weather Blog

It’s snowing and blowing but our crews ran Mt. Hood Express, Shooting Star and Hood River Express all night so they are not iced. We're shooting for a 9 AM opening (wind permitting) with HRE opening at 8:30. Buttercup and Easy Rider are turning. Daisy and Stadium are on wind standby and upper mountain lifts are weather standby/storm recover.

Kudos to our lift maintenance team for their all night vigil and all those green coats (snow sports and guest services) for their early morning call out to assist in getting these lifts open. If the winds allow we'll be serving up fresh powder for breakfast.
